Today has been mostly cloudy with some light showers in the north valley and our northern counties during the day, which have since cleared. Valley highs in the mid-to-high 50s.

Sunday night will be cloudy with rain & snow moving in the overnight hours.

A winter storm is headed our way and will impact us from the early morning hours on Monday into Monday night. Widespread rain which could be heavy at times. The heaviest band of rain will be along the cold front. If the front stays on track, it could move through before the afternoon which could leave enough of a window for a few thunderstorms to form in the valley. Rain totals will be between half an inch to an inch and a half in the valley. Multiple inches will be possible in the eme north valley and in foothill locations.

Snow will also be heavy in the mountains. A WINTER STORM WARNING will be in place all day Monday. Snow levels will start around 5500 feet then drop as low as 4000 feet after the heaviest snow falls. 8-18 inches of snow will be possible with the highest peaks such as Mt Shasta or Lassen Peak seeing multiple feet of snow.

Monday will also see windy weather, especially along the front. Winds as strong as 30 mph, gusting up to 45 mph. A WIND ADVISORY is in place for the valley and coastal counties. A HIGH WIND WARNING is in place for Modoc county.

Tuesday will be a nice day with most seeing mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid-to-low 50s.

Another round of rain & snow is possible on Wednesday.

Thursday & Friday have more rain chances but will be more scattered and light compared to Monday's and even Wednesday's systems. The rain will come in very late Thursday.

Next weekend looks to see a return to some dry weather with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper-50s.
